Kickstart & A Year in Review Update, Part 1

Hi family <3 I've decided to begin again and rejoin the blogging world.  I blame our hectic life, laziness, and Facebook for my hiatus.  But alas, Spring is on the brink again and y'all know how this time of year inspires me.  So, to kickstart this return, I thought I'd keep it simple with an update, a sort of year in review.

First, around the time of my last post, we were blessed to have Rachell move in with us.  Now she is currently getting ready to move to Orlando, FL on the 21st of February where she will be interning for Disney's Career Start Program.  This performance marks the end of her stay with my BFF/Sister Jamie (more on her later) and the beginning of Rachell's stay on the Outer Banks.

Having Rachell here with us has enriched our family beyond measure.  I've said this before but she is a light to our family whose love for God inspires me and encourages me through my walk with God.  I am so blessed to have had her share in our life here in the Outer Banks and am forever grateful for the bond formed between Rachell and Makoa.

"In the same way, let your light shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds
 and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Mother's Day 2010 was extra special for me this year because we dedicated ourselves as parents to raise and encourage Makoa to live a Christ-like life.

Year in review to be continued...I gotta go bake some Valentine's Day cookies for Makoa's class. See you soon, I promise <3
